Matthew 7:24-25 “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
Luke 6:47-48 “Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: He is like a man which build an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.”
The most dangerous part of moving the hangars at Edwards Air Force Base in 1955 (see the previous post) was when they were between foundations. Being between foundations meant that those buildings were without a foundation for a period of time. In this case, the process took five long weeks. In order to provide extra stability during this painstaking move, the hangars were thoroughly braced with added wooden supports to keep them in the original structurally-sound shape. In this condition, they were carefully jacked up to rest upon 54 heavy-duty dollies.
A building without a foundation, or without the right foundation, is in a seriously precarious position. So are people. So is a nation. The best foundation is dug deep and built upon the stability of a rock. Not just any rock, but the Rock. PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICANS WOULD ONCE AGAIN RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF BUILDING OUR FOUNDATION UPON CHRIST.
